Poll: One In Five Uninsured Have Visited Obamacare Marketplaces


About one in five uninsured Americans have visited the online insurance marketplaces created by Obamacare, according to a new Gallup poll.

Gallup found that 18 percent of the uninsured had visited the sites, which include HealthCare.gov, the troubled federal site that serves more than 30 states. Among the uninsured who say they do plan to use the marketplaces to purchase insurance, the number who have visited the marketplacesĀ ticks up to 22 percent.

Three in 10 of those surveyed said they were somewhat or very familiar with the marketplaces, according to Gallup.

The poll, conducted from Oct. 23 to Nov. 6, surveyed 854 uninsured U.S. adults.

Gallup hadĀ previously found about one in four uninsured adults say they’re more likely to pay the penalty for not having insurance than to purchase insurance on the marketplaces.
